Me

15 Facts about me

2.I love shoes and am also qualified to make them

3.I love lip gloss (numerous brands, finishes and shades to be found in car, handbag, next to laptop, travel bag, kitchen, bedroom, bedside table, bathroom….ooooh and don’t forget the lip scrub in the shower! 🙂

4.I love chupa chups – fortunately….they are also everywhere! See above point; exclude shower.

5.I love Red Wine in Winter and Champagne in Summer – I assume….no explanation required

6.I am a hoarder – see previous posts for explanation

7.I am determined to be a mother one day

8.I love free stuff and winning things is even better = comp addict

9.I love pets…animals…any sort…give them all to me for all of my love! I want a farm one day….or a hippie farm….chooks and sheep and little pigs and rabbits and ducks and of course the dogs, cats, birds, fish…..

10.I love the beach….I love to wake up to the sounds of the waves…I have been lucky enough in my life to live this way a little tiny while!

11.I also love the rainforest and the middle of nowhere and the hippie country – this is my dream home

12.I love fashion and unfortunately I am going to have to expand my wall of wardrobe into the next bedroom in my house which….oh, yay lucky me – also has a wall of wardrobe – shhhh!!!!

13.I love computers and technology = thanks Dad

14.I love sport for once in my life and really do try harder at it (Shut up you!) = thanks Cadel

Today I love…..getting my mojo back….

24 Feb

If I had the time…. the things I know I would find….oh time, where are you lately??

Energy…where are you? Motivation? Inspiration? Creativeness? Purpose in life?

I’m fading away….what else can I say?

I have so much I wish to type about – perhaps this is just the entree…..I love gnomes and I hate opening milk cartons right now…I hate having clean skin that is still itchy…I love watching dead set….I need to tell you this tho….I am here still!

Today I love gnomes….again…hanging and dying and waiting to see Gnomeo and Juliet – got some free tix so can’t wait for that right now…

I’m wondering about fashion more than I thought I would lately – maybe it’s because I am s seriously loving all of the A/W 2011 looks out right now….and then I get depressed when I look at my wardrobe and then I wonder if maybe  could do a whole lot better with the wonderful tings that I already own? I believe that I could – and should! So….this is my next task….do you have items in your wardrobe that you have never, perhaps should never….wear? I do….but I do love them and would wear them IF I had a chance or occasion to wear them….I call them my trophy wardrobe – do you have a trophy wardrobe? I have to give you at least one pic so here goes…my first trophy item….and one that I really, really, really LOVE always and every day!!! 🙂

As you can see, this is a special trophy item as it’s current purpose in life is to sit next to the Mr. Big work shirts and look pretty and completely and totally counteract them in my poor little wardrobe that has been overrun by manly things lately….

Today I love…..hearting it every single day!!!

19 Feb

I can’t live without you….

I have to check you every day….

Even if it’s just for a few minutes or a couple of hours on the sly….

I heart you…..for lifting my spirit or teaching me something new about the world……

Today I love….Rachael Treasure

30 Jul

This woman is one hell of an Aussie!!!

She is worth her weight in gold for the wonderful work she does for working sheep dogs, women, their families and rural farming communities in this country.

What a woman she is!!!

As Rachael herself says:

“My life is made rich with the presence of animals in my life. I adore my sheep (Crossbreds and Merinos) and Hereford Cattle that are raised on all natural grass.

Our dogs are part of our family. We have both Kelpies and Collies, a Springer Spaniel for truffle harvest and a cheeky Jack Russell that’s great on cleaning my kitchen floor.

We use our horses for both social outings (riding down to the bar at the cricket club) or working stock on the farm. We also breed a few foals using good Aussie stockhorse or Waler genetics.”

My Mum got me reading her books and now I just can’t put them down – well, now I can because I have read them all and I need Rachael to write more for me and her many other fans!!

Today I love….Dogs Balls!!

16 May

Oooooh and ahhhhh………..

Our puppies are just so precious!!!

So Mr. Bigs’ family has a puppy….a 6 month old border collie x staffy…..

Here she is at six weeks….

The puppy is not very well trained, but he belongs to Mr. Bigs’ older brother and THAT is another story altogether….

Anyway, the puppy – Samantha (yes, a very nice name for a very lovely dog)

has discovered that the round squishy thing

gets thrown again and again and again when it gets returned and given back to the human thing….

After a while this distracting and never-ending process all starts to wear on Mr.Bigs’ poor Ma who does the chores of  Mr. Bigs’ brother – diligently loving, feeding, walking, playing with and training Samantha the princess (read/edit= tart) and who will also throw and throw and throw the ball for the dog when it is returned.

So this evening while sharing cuppas, chats and fun with the family and dramas (another story, stay tuned….) with the little munchkins,

I questioned Mr. Bigs’ Mother regarding the number of tennis balls present

on the table before us both….

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6!!???

Eventually I discover that she has had enough and is totally over throwing the ball, so said ball gets placed on the table and is retired.

Samantha disappears out to the back yard and returns in a few minutes with another tennis ball.

Said ball is placed on the table and hence is now in retirement.

This process is repeated numerous times.

We now have the 6 balls in retirement on the table.

We are then made aware of the presence of a

(complete whole and full!!!)

bucket of balls sitting in the back yard shed where Samantha is returning to and gaining her pleasure from!

The poor puppy eventually gives up and realises that play time is now over.

But a very funny and jovial time was had with some dogs balls today!!!

I really don’t think play time is ever over for puppies….And it shouldn’t be I say!!!

My poor puppy who is now 12 years old is still totally kicking it

(albeit quite tired lately!)

but I dread and will be so damn sad when

the day comes where I will never have his balls on my table again.

Love you wongtime (eternity) my wittle Jeffy……
